A Primer on Microbiota in Your Gut

Many experts agree that a healthy lifestyle and probiotics may help keep gut microbiota balanced. Here’s how.

The gut microbiota is the population of trillions of bacteria and other microorganisms in your intestines that are key to your well-being. Over the past few decades, researchers are learning that the gut microbiome is important for many aspects of your health such as your digestive health, immune health and absorption of nutrients from food.

Not All Probiotics
are Created Equal
It is essential to know that not all probiotics are the same. Different strains offer different benefits, and some are more effective and more efficacious than others. There are also important variations in levels of probiotic performance such as survivability, health benefit efficacy, and formulation flexibility.

Benefit from Probiotics

When most people think of gut health, they think of freedom from traditional stomach issues—bloating, cramping and discomfort. What many of us don’t realize is that gut health encompasses much more. In fact, when it comes to gut health, the digestive organs function like a miniature city, with interrelated parts contributing to the overall function of the gut microbiome. Probiotics like BC30 can help regulate bacterial populations, which can help keep your systems running smoothly.

 

Probiotic Benefits are Strain-specific

In the world of probiotics, strain differentiation is not just important, it’s vital, because the benefits of a probiotic actually depend on the probiotic strain.

Every bacteria strain has its own strain-specific characteristics and benefits. This means health benefits, safety and clinical data from one strain cannot be used to support the safety and efficacy of another strain. There are also important variations in levels of probiotic performance such as survivability and products they can be formulated into.

What Makes a Quality Probiotic Ingredient?

When selecting or recommending a probiotic, it’s important to do your research and check that the probiotic you consume:

  • Is safe
  • Is backed by science
  • Provides an effective dose
  • Provides the benefit you’re seeking
  • Is able to survive the making of a probiotic fortified food or beverage AND the transit though your stomach acid to the gut
  • Is labeled properly (look for the brand name and the strain name, CFU, and suggested dose)
BC30 is Designed to be Different
BC30 is a spore-forming probiotic, which means it has a protective shell allowing it to better survive extreme temperatures – like microwaves and boiling water. It can also survive through your stomach acid until the probiotics arrive in your gut, where they team up with your own bacteria. And because BC30 has been shown to support digestive health, immune health, and protein utilization you can get easily get these added health benefits in your everyday foods and beverages.
